Reply to "MySpace and Facebook (was "Myspace")"

If you want to know what I think about Myspace read the blog entries on 'my space.' It is a nonplace built out of endless paradoxes, mental switchbacks and unsubtle commodification. But it is a real phenomenon. You are all one step closer to being cyborgs.

And who cares how many friends you get -that is just part of the whole 'people are social capital' perversion. I was offered a program that would scoop up thousands of 'friends' off myspace in one cycle. One of the early adapters of myspace said he got up to 10,000 'friends' by offering all sorts of free stuff -cyberschwag- in bulletins. The basic thing I get off on is you are being exceedingly social without being physically social at all. Why didn't someone invent this 20 years ago when I really needed it?
